Off for a Friday night show at Black-eyed Sally’s. Albert Castiglia, who I first met in Memphis many years ago was playing.
But first we had to make a delivery to Brian. He was looking for a beer from Wisconsin and as luck would have it, we have a friend that lives six miles from the brewery.
Next was a chance to meet up with Albert.
then the band came on:
The playing was fast and furious with the audience enjoying every note. Looking at Albert you could see in his face the effort that goes into his playing. The many looks:
Albert mugs for the camera
Our table enjoying the show.
Chris and Matt working hard. Matt also joined in on some vocals.
Fans get a chance to talk with Albert during the break.
A little one-handed playing
A broken string had Albert doing the last song with one less string.
The show went by too fast. All too soon we were getting ready to go. Looking forward to seeing him again.
I will let my Sister sum it up, “Last night at Black Eyed Sally’s!! The Albert Castiglia Band was on FIRE!! And so much fun!! That was such an awesome night!! He blew me away, lol, I was up till 3:00 listening to his music at home!!”
